The bill to abolish the railroad

Voters have had ample time to in
form themselves on the court house
question, and we believe that manv
who at first opposed the special tax
will now support the measure. We
lielieve the vote will le overwhelm
ingly in favor of the special tax.
The surest and liest way to settle
the court house . proposition is to
vote Y es. There is no use of pro
longing the subject from year to year,
spending large sums of money for
elections and rent and in the end
build a now building. It is simply a
pi tin business proposition. Morwin

The memliers of the court are all

The court invites a committee of
taxpayers of the county, to be eoni-

The taxpayers of Butler are inter
ested alike with every other taxpay
erin the county, in the building of a
court house, no more, no less. It
would not put a dollar into their

upon us because our taxes ureal

Havana. Feb. 17 The Cubancon-
brot Iter's predicament.
It is too bad. too bad, too bail,"
Hates county needs badly and
ought to ha ve a new court house.
That is a matter over which there
should be no quibbling. The safety
of the public records and a comforta
ble and convenient place for officers
to do business, and for the people to
go to Ire served, should overcome all
jealousies or capt ious fault-finding.
One wwk from to-morrow, Satur
day, Feb. the special election, to
vote on the proposition to build a
new court, house, will be held. Two
ejections have already !een held for
thin purnose arid e;iei h.i iLn...
strated that a large majority of the
voters favor the proposition, but
each time the vote was a little shy of
the necessary two-thirds. Since the
majority favor the proposition it
seems illogical for so small a minor
ity to stubbornly resist it. and we do
oti believe they will at theapproach
ing election. At least there is 1,-ss
op n opposition than lias heretofore
been manifested. Adrian Journal.
